Not done a race in ages and it's been a while since I've had a working bike too. Planning on doing two laps (20 miles). Obviously fitness and skill will contribute about 90% to how well I do, but the little things I could do with seeing what STW thinks.
-What tyres should I use on which wheel, out of the ones I own?
I have a Schwalbe Fat Albert Front 2.4, Racing Ralph 2.25, 2 x Geax Saguaros 2.0 and a Continental Explorer 2.1 - all folding.
Bear in mind I have a rigid bike.
-How much water should I carry?
It'll be early May, will try to drink loads before rolling up to the start line, I won't be using a Camelbak or some such, just two bottles in cages max.
-Should I save weight by removing valve caps?
